Here is a colorful member of the Fringillidae that many bird lovers in the UK simply call a bullfinch, just as those in America call its relative Spinus tristis simply a goldfinch.
While there is no comparable bullfinch in the USA, there ARE completely different species called goldfinch in the two places — AND two unrelated species called robin redbreast as well!
People living in either location can find delight in learning about species appreciated by bird lovers “on the other side of the pond”!
Here’s a look at some of the bullfinch‘s neighbors (go to 4:36 to see the goldfinch):

When you feel more familiar with this species, try some or all of these activities:
1. Take the Species Quiz
2. Create & share your own Species Brief
4. Fill out one of the species profile spreads in your printed Jo Bird Journal
5. Post the Square2share on social media to see if your friends know this species, and perhaps teach them a bit about it. Teaching SOLIDIFIES learning!
